Home / Why is AFA Important

 

The Adjunct Faculty Association (AFA) is a professional organization whose mission is to champion the Adjunct Faculty of the Maricopa County Community Colleges District (MCCCD).  More than half of the classes offered at Maricopa are taught by adjuncts.  With such a large impact on the education of Maricopa students, Adjunct Faculty need a voice in the district and on our ten campuses.

As the voice of the Adjunct Faculty of Maricopa, the AFA strives to:

  • Keep adjuncts informed about new district and campus policies, initiatives and events that directly impact Adjunct Faculty
  • Promote the professional development of Adjunct Faculty
  • Provide a network to facilitate adjunct engagement at the district and campus level
  • Present the adjunct perspective as new programs and policies are developed by the district and our ten campuses
  • Advocate with the district and our campuses on the behalf of Adjunct Faculty
